Try to avoid acccusations in the sense of complaining that she did things as though intentionally intending to affect you negatively, and concentrate on what happened WHICH MADE YOU feel bad. She's an expert on professional behaviour, but you're the expert on how things, events, remarks, whatever, make you feel.
You can, as you began to, discuss the Geodon crisis, and how you felt abandoned when neither of them seemed to take it as seriously as you felt it needed to be addressed, and how you felt abandoned and alone at a time when you needed support. If she was unavailable a the time you most urgently felt the need for her support, you can mention that, and consider how someone who is very busy as she surely is, could handle such a crisis differently.
If you have already addressed all the issues in an email to her ( take a copy with you ) it may be more that she wants to explain and respond directly rather than by e-mail, so this would set the main agenda.
Maybe emphasize that you were alarmed when she did not respond promptly in the way she had usually done in previous crises. She hasn't had the opportunity to assess you lately, so you can poin t out that you have, in your view, been hypomanic lately, and that this needs to be taken into account, and that you feel she tends to minimize the significance of the symptoms you consider hypomanic.
Its pretty usual for a particular psychiatrist and psychologist to often refer patients to each other - its usually best to refer to someone you know and have comfidence in. So you can calmly point out how you found that the psychiatrist responded very inadequately to the geodon crisis, to the point that he failed to get it covered by the medical aid, when you on your own were able to do so.
